Chapter 4. Flash Animation > Changing Timeline Views

Changing Timeline Views

For most people, the standard timeline view is the best for most projects. However, Flash offers flexibility in terms of how you can view the timeline. In some cases, you may want a preview of what your animation is going to look like over time, and in others you may want the frames to appear very small so you can fit more on your screen. Whatever the case may be, the ability to change frame styles is a nice option to have, so let's review what each style looks like and the advantages and disadvantages of those styles.

As shown in Figure 4.14, you have options for changing the size, color, and style of the frames. Generally these different views are used for cartoon animators, to get a preview of what their animation will actually look like. You can also scale down the size of the frames to allow more viewable timeline space.
